1. AS Roma

Francesco Totti's AS Roma are sitting at the top of the Serie A league table after twelve games with ten wins and two draws. FC Juventus, SSC Napoli, Fiorentina, AC Milan, Inter Milan, SS Lazio are all of them beneath them.

After a disappointing last season in which Zdenek Zeman did not manage to achieve anything special with Roma, few believed Rudi Garcia would be able to do anything different.

The Frenchman evidently had a different opinion and has instilled a great confidence in his charges at Roma, helping them to an almost record-breaking start.

Garcia is key to their fortunes; he made fans of Roma believe again in their club. The roster of the club maybe small and the attacking solutions may be restricted but Totti and his gang are showing the rest that they want this title and they won't let it go without a fight.
